    Not to mention not even a real or proven diagnosis. not to mention a reasonable response to having one's personal, civil, and human rights violated so horribly

    Unfathomable. An appalling new detail. This whole bunch need to go to jail. They are dangerous criminals.

    Bless this fine journalist for saying all the things that need to be said.

    Outright blackmail. Illegal. Cruel. Idiotic. Double-bind.

    I could keep posting extracts from this article. Really excellent. Thank you for posting, Sasha.

    As I understood from something I read previously about Karina the whole Pervasive Refusal Syndrome is a childhood "diagnosis" even if one chooses to believe this syndrome exists it should not be applied to Karina who was an adult when diagnosed with it.

    Mind you, that's probably the least of the problems she faces. I shudder to think what her life must be like.

    You have to sympathise. Imagine going through school with the names Nils Balle. What sort of complexes might this induce in a man.
